Overview

This exciting, action-packed novel marks Jack Chalker's triumphant return to his celebrated multivolume saga: The Well World. The Sea Is Full of Stars explores an unknown interstellar civilization, stars an all-new cast of characters, and reveals fresh secrets. But of course, The Well remains . . .

After three passengers--Ming, Ari, and Angel--embark on an elite starship journey into the Realm, they unwittingly become ensnared in one man's bloodthirsty vendetta that will alter their very beings. That man is Jeremiah Wong Kincaid. He vows to destroy Josich Conqueror Hadun, the evil genius who has wreaked unspeakable havoc throughout the universe. It is an obsession that will take him to lands of demons and strange races--and into a deadly new cyberworld where humans are mere pawns of the godlike computers they have created.

But it is only after Kincaid and his unwitting fellow travelers enter Well World and discover the water hexes that he confronts the mad tyrant--and learns their universe is threatened by something far, far worse . . .

Meet the Author

Jack L. Chalker was born in Baltimore, Maryland, on December 17, 1944. While still in high school, he began writing for the amateur science fiction press, and in 1960 he launched the Hugo-nominated amateur magazine Mirage. A year later he founded Mirage Press, which grew into a major specialty publisher of nonfiction and reference books on science fiction and fantasy.

His first novel, A Jungle of Stars, was published in 1976, and he became a full-time novelist two years later with the major popular success of Midnight at the Well of Souls. Chalker is an active conservationist and enjoys traveling, consumer electronics, and computers. He is also a noted speaker on science fiction and fantasy at numerous colleges and universities. He is a passionate lover of steamboats, in particular ferryboats, and has ridden more than three hundred ferries in the United States and elsewhere.

    Verry,Verry Good.

    Verry,Verry Good. Jack L. Chalker books are the best books you can read. I have read most of his books and I have enjoyed every one of his books and this was no exception.

    A Dip Into the Well of Souls

    Volume six in Jack Chalker's series of the Well World, The Sea Is Full Of Stars, was a fascinating book in which an alien madman, insane and power hungry, wishes to take over an artificial planet and then continue to dominate the universe in a role as near to a god as possible. I'd give this sci-fi adventure novel a 5-star rating. Taking you through the viewpoint of each main character, Chalker gives you a real sense that this book could very well be his best yet. Chalker's use of dialogue brings the characters to life. I especially liked his portrayal of the dark and brooding Jeremiah Wong Kincaid. As a counterpoint to Kincaid's intensity, the priestess Angel appears pure and righteous. Together, they chart their own destiny. In Chalker's Well World, where hundreds of races reside in an equal number of hexagonal, laboratory-like worlds, anything can happen. The races inhabiting each world possess strange, even mystical powers. When someone enters the Well World for the first time, they are permanently turned into one of the hundreds of races at random, regardless of what they were before. Overall, this was an intriguing new set to his multi-book series, and I look forward to reading Chalker's next saga in the Well World.
